Coconut Grove's Lady Titans almost there

The  Coconut Grove Lady Titans made their second debut in the Greater Miami Pop Warner Local Cheerleading Championships and came home with two 1st Place and one 2nd Place trophies. Now the spirited squads are headed to Orlando to vie for the Southeast Regional Cheer Championships. This local championship marks the first time that the Coconut Grove Cheer program has ever placed first in a competition since its inception. This is a great accomplishment not only for the participating athletes and coaches, but for the community at large. 

$10,000 is needed for the trip and they have raised all but $1500.  They were down $5500 earlier today, but they raised $4000 in just the one day.

They leave Thursday and need the additional funds. If you can help, please contact 
Cheer Commissioner, Nikenna Benjamin at 305-546-1153. 
With annual cuts to funding and rising expenses, the Lady Titans need help covering their basic food, lodging and travel expenses.

The Titans Cheer Program is composed of 40 young ladies, ages 6-14, who have been loyal and hardworking throughout the entire season. Now they just want a chance to defend their hard earned title.

“It’s been a long wait and a lot of effort put into the Coconut Grove Cheer Program bringing it to this level. This is a great experience for our children to make history,” said team Grand-parent, Elaine Taylor.

“I know what God’s favor is and what He is capable of doing. I’m over joyed for my girls and my coaches because I know this is the result of obedience and hard work paying off,” Nikenna said. “Everyone has worked so very hard and we will do our very best to raise the funds so that we may continue on to Orlando.”
